Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Thrill Ride

One of the shows closest to my heart . One of the tapes that turned me on , handed to me 25 years ago . I use the same source as was given me long ago . Thank - you Ken Lee . What a gift . Do not fear AUD sourcing only ; the power , scope , beauty and intensity of this performance are enhanced not diminished as the band and audience are one . From flame spouters to bomb exploders to on tape face melting ( @ beginning of StS , " Yeah , Yeah, No, NO " )to a one time only set list and the smoking ruins are left of your mind . I start @ NFA and go . There is a lot to this night and Garcia played all of it . I will probably never have the words to describe -> DS > Attics > DS > Sugar Mags > DS > StS
6 - 24 - 70 is waiting for you . If you've never listened , strap yourself in . If you have , get ready to have a real good time , again . It's the 40th anniversary of this show . As LiA put it recently , enjoy ' the thrill ride " .

edit - The reviews , esp. Ken Lee's , are something to read . Leave one yourself if moved and spread the word if it moves . :)

I agree on that Dark Star> Attics sequence. It's an extraordinary passage, and as significant as any from the entire history of the band. Several years ago I listened to it during a Chimora ceremony. It was a profound experience...

Awww , Cliff
A bottle of Cote de Roite , a bottle of Dom and some San Pedro cactus ( making some tea ? ). Lord , if that's to get me to go fishing sign me up . I'm sure the music would suck , but I'd get by . :)

I don't know if I would or could come back in a similar circumstance , just listening to 6 / 24 gets me high .

You are very welcome to come shark fishing any Thursday this season, as are any other folks who would care to participate. jglynn would likely join you, and perhaps Direwolf and Wharfrat. Any others?

Thanks for the invite Cliff, but I'm afraid I'd end up as bait.

Sweet words for a sublime show. Thanks micah6vs8.

We are blessed in having AUDs for the various Capitol Theater shows of 1970. Not just because no soundboards are known to exist, but because they give such a wonderful glimpse through the looking glass to the space in time these shows inhabited 40 years ago. It might not be quite the same as actually being there but they do give 'just a taste' as Pigpen would say. The audience recording of this show exhibits a definite vibe that rolls off the tape, into your room, and into your ears when you listen.

There's a similar energy, vibe, and atmosphere on the 11/8/70 tape too. I remember the first time I heard that show. I lit a few candles, turned out the lights, and was transported to a 1970 Dead show.

By starting at NFA you miss some REALLY good NRPS, not to mention some fine acoustical

For Penance I say you must start with Dire Wolf

I tagged this when you mentioned it, and finally got a chance to listen to the whole thing in the right way ... headphones, no interruption from the kiddo ... kept me up until 3:30 a.m., but somehow I still wasn't tired! Great stuff. Posted a review to spread the word :-) I can see why you rave about it ...
